Rick,
TO is exactly what this sleepy franchise needs.
 He would definitely shake up the offense; giving them someone that could catch passes, run routes, and keep sleepyhead Turner focusing on attacking the opposing defense rather than running fullbacks at the forty yard line for two yards on fourth down.
 He would also show the young, never coached properly, receivers what it takes to make plays.
 AND it would force Orton to throw the ball to a spot, because he would know his receiver would ACTUALLY be where they were supposed to be.
 It would affect the defense because: they wouldn’t like him showing them up, and they wouldn’t have to worry about giving up a touchdown knowing that they had an offense on the bench to back them up.
 It would also affect that mummified front office that acts like a sloth and doesn’t seem to want to become and stay one of the premier franchises in pro football. We all know how weak their scouting staff is, maybe seeing a REAL receiver in person they might learn something,
 We all knew that them going to the Superbowl a few years ago was a freak and that they had no chance to win. With TO would they have won that game?

Does being a Bears fan include the stipulation that you don't want jerks playing for the team even thought that jerk would give you more wins????

Isn't winning the most important thing in Pro Sports? Is TO a jerk and a baby? Yes. Is he more talented than anything the Bears have? YES

Sign him!!!

Unfortunately, we Bears fans have to wait a tad bit longer than those of some of the more successful teams to have our football fantasy's fulfilled.
Sad but true. T.O.? N O. But maybe one day we'll land an offensive coordinator who puts us in favorable down and distances by being creative and spontaneous, and maybe we'll finally get a quaterback that's at least marginally mobile, has a good arm, and the heart and instincts to lead. That would lead to a defense which spends less time on the field,
resulting in less injuries, culminating in a team that makes the playoffs almost every year, decreasing the wait for us, the Bears fans, as we continue to be forever loyal and eternally patient...for now.

I believe that Terrell Owens is one of the best, if not the best receiver in the game today. But the fact that he is not about the team make complete sense on why not to hire a jerk like him. Love his game play but his attitude would mess up any good atmosphere. Sorry But I agree with the bears 100% not to hire terrel

I don't want him either but I don't understand this reputation that great players have that they're not for the team. When a guy catches 20 passes in a game, how is that not for the team? There's a certain amount of egocentrism required in football, especially at the wide receiver position.
